Peach Fuzz

Pantone’s Colour of the Year, ‘Peach Fuzz’ is a fresh and youthful shade nestled between pink and orange, exuding quiet sophistication with vintage charm.

This versatile hue lends itself to various surfaces across the bathroom, from painted walls to lacquered furniture and glazed tiles. Ideal for brightening dull spaces, Peach Fuzz effortlessly harmonises with a range of colours and tones, including warm neutrals, sage greens, and greys.

Irregular Shapes

Organic, curvy, and free-flowing irregular shapes have come to the fore. Reminiscent of fluid ripples, puddles, lakes, and rivers, these non-geometric shapes and asymmetrical patterns break away from rigid lines and uniformity – a perfect counterbalance to the often-found harsh lines in bathrooms.

This trend celebrates the allure of imperfection, infusing spaces with dynamic movement, excitement, and a playful edge. Mirrors, tables, basins, baths, and rugs, this organic trend is anticipated to cascade further into 2024.

Caramel Latte

Caramel Latte is a soothing amalgamation of neutral tones, with a base of off-white, chalk, and milky cream, complemented by warming accents of beige, brown, honey, and caramel. A calming, peaceful palette, Caramel Latte is at home in both traditional and contemporary settings, emerging as the new ‘modern-day neutral.’

When incorporating Caramel Latte into the bathroom, begin with the softer, lighter hues and introduce accents of toasted caramel – particularly effective with softer shapes. Think lacquered basins and vanity units, tonal soft furnishings, light fittings, and rugs.

Woven Appeal

Texture remains a principal element in modern-day interiors, lending surfaces depth and a tactile quality reminiscent of the natural world.

Artisanal and handcrafted items, shaped from natural fibres through weaving, knotting, and intertwining, are a celebration of traditional craftsmanship and ingenious techniques, seamlessly integrating into contemporary design while embracing sustainability.

Rattan, cane, wicca, and straw – sourced from various palm species in the tropical forests of Southeast Asia and Africa – are at the fore of this trend, with designers championing these materials through their choice of lamps, furniture, chairs, tableware, rugs, and art.

Travertine, a variation of porous limestone, is formed when mineral-rich water passes through sedimentary rocks, leaving deposits that gradually harden over time. This chemical process gives travertine its distinctive pitted texture and wavy pattern, rendering each piece unique.

Robust and hard-wearing, despite its porous nature, travertine is sought-after in contemporary design, used for tables, worktops, tiles, and bowls. Displaying varying tones and patterns, travertine sings when paired with natural wood and woven accessories.
